Topping off a mileage account??
« on: June 25, 2010, 03:56:22 PM »
Does anyone know of "little ways" to top off various accounts?
Ex. download AA's shopping toolbar for 500 miles.

 how many are U short? and how fast do U need them?

 I use my Double dipping with Hilton just for this reason as well as sometimes Id pay the rental car comps the fees to get the miles as well (some times you can leave it blank and call up afterwards they will say they will charge you they usually dont but a few have). other times instead of earning Hotel pts opt in for miles for that stay

 theres filling in those that are partners with Amex MR only by the 1000ths.then theres e-miles or e-rewards not fast but it gets it done and keeps an acct active when you arent flying that Carrier any longer till you use up the miles. or shopping online via the Carriers portal at 1 of their partners

Considering it takes "8-10" weeks, make that more like $27 at least.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Some airlines have e-shopping malls where you earn miles per dollar spent.

E-rewards

You have to get invited for it though. I got invited by Priority club, US airways and Alaskan airlines.

As far as i know, you have to me a member of one their partners and just wait for the email.
The rewards are not great. You get fictitious money for completing surveys that take forever, and partial payment for surveys which you dont qualify for. I usually try to not qualify for them and take the stupid $.50 or so and it eventually adds up. You can redeem $25 of this fictitious money for 500 miles or $30 for 1000 priority club points.

 a few yrs ago it was worth taking the quick $ as they were giving $$ and not cents

 I sure do hope that they dont use anything I filled in on those surveys to decide how to proceed with their biz going forward, 90% of the stuff they ask me I have no idea what they are talking about

I just cashed in $100 for 2500 DL miles actually Im Topping off that acct LoL. It was $100 for 2000 and then DL gave an extra 500 bonus on transfers

 another good thing is to get the DL Amex if you already had it no 25k bonus miles but 1st yr still free and spend what you need to top off the acct. even better as the DL amex now gives you your 1st bag free. So just use the miles up before your are charged the fee the 2nd yr

Its more for keeping your account active than topping up.
